If you have a bin of nuts and washers and things, you’re half-way to turning a wine bottle into an oil lamp. (And even if you don’t have a nut and washer bin, you can pick a few up–plus the other items you’ll need to complete this project–at the hardware store for pennies!)
The supplies you’ll want to gather:
- An empty wine bottle
- A 1 ½” or so long threaded nipple–I used one from an old lamp kit
- Two ½” to 5/8″ nuts–one wide, one skinny–that will thread onto the nipple
- A 1″ washer that fits onto the nipple
- Oil lamp wick (I bought some at my local hardware store.
